Thought Reader

Digital Inspiration talks about a brain-computer interface typewriter, that translates thoughts into cursor movements on the computer screen is now on display at CeBit.

It records electric signals from the scalp and translates them to movements on the screen. It can be used for communication even when the person is completely paralysed. If it goes wireless and connects to the internet, we could even use it for mass hypnosis or telepathy. Just guess what all a virus could do to us then.

It would be amusing if such a thing came into use in the office. There would not be much difference between planning and execution right.
